Democracy; an American novel by Henry Adams( Book )

190 editions published between 1880 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the best novels ever written about Washington, D.C. Since it was written well over a century ago [1880], I anticipated that it would feel dated. Instead, the novel feels incredibly fresh. From the smart and ambitious young widow taking the political establishment by storm to the idealistic young war veteran lawyer advising her to the scheming and aging senator to the out-of-his-depth president, all of the characters (while obviously drawn on real people of the day) are recognizable and fun. --Inga at Amazon.com
